Washer won't always spin when it should. The unit makes a clicking sound, and at times it will catch. I'd like to fix it before it goes out completely.
1 press power ( to wake up washer)
2 press Home ( it may already show HOME)
3 press HELP
4 press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK (for 3 to 5 seconds)
the service mode diagnostics screen will come up
it will show what errors are recorded..( if more button is displayed then also go to next list)
be sure to write them down exit will clear the codes and run a test
let me know what it tell you I can help...

This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.
Hope this helps.

The gears maybe going out. Sometimes it is able to engage in the other direction which the spin, sometimes not. Washing machine have complex gears that in one way agitator works, and the other the gear locks to turn the whole tub. The clicking noise is probably the locking mechanism in the gears that has caused the whole intermittent problem.
